Giveaway ǀ Not One but Two Giveaways!



Once upon a time I never read novellas. Nowadays I read them with more regularity and find them actually quite refreshing. They're like a peek into a Story that is good enough to be a full-fledged novel, but instead, the wise author teases us with the set up and leaves us wandering around the possibilities of what might happen.

The two most recent novellas I had the pleasure of reading were contemporary romance novelist, Becky Wade's Love in the Details. This novella is part of Zondervan's Year of Weddings collection and in true Becky Wade style, as only she can write, the story is beautiful! Next I had the honor of reading my friend Amber's upcoming novella, While You're Awake. Most of you know fairytales are like Kryptonite for this reader. I'm kind of obsessed with the concept and many re-tellings (this one is loosely inspired by Sleeping Beauty). Toss in a modern twist (my favorite genre is contemporary!) and I'm for sure going to be reading this one. The original plan was to have Amber's reviewed today, alas, that did not happen. Instead you can see the pretty cover reveal post (which went live on Tuesday) and will have to endure another blog post from me gushing over While You're Awake.

In the meantime, I wanted to give all of you a chance to read these little novellas, plus it's been a while since we celebrated giveaway style. Below are all of the relevant details for both novella (purchase links, Goodreads page, etc.).

Next, before we get to the awesome details of the book, let's talk about those boring rules.

The giveaway(s) is open to all readers. But if you are outside the U.S., by entering you're agreeing to accept a gifted Kindle version of the book; U.S. readers will have the option of choosing Kindle or paperback (when applicable). I do ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - there have been a few people I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it! Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond to the email notification before another winner is randomly chosen.

To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget, which you'll find down below. (Note: this giveaway is running for an extended period of time since the both novellas release late in October.)


Love in the Details Synopsis: When Josh returns to his hometown of Martinsburg, Texas, to help his best friend get married, he didn’t intend to run into church wedding coordinator—and ex-girlfriend—Holly. He can’t help but pine after the girl he never got over.

Holly broke up with Josh years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. But she loved him then and still loves him now. As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she can’t help but feel horrible for the pain she caused him. And even though she longs to be with Josh, she doesn’t feel worthy of his big-time lifestyle when she is more comfortable in her small town world. Will Josh and Holly be able to keep things as they are when their true feelings threaten to surface at every turn?

While You're Awake Synopsis: There’s no rest for the fearful.Ava always knew the bees would come. Just when she’s settled into a place of her own, freelance editing and savoring her independence, her rental house is invaded by a swarm of honey bees. And with their arrival, her lifelong fear morphs into a full-fledged panic that steals her sleep—and her peace of mind.

Keegan knows all about fear. When he meets Ava at the coffee shop where he works, he can’t help but come to her rescue. Together with his German shepherds, Sun and Moon, he sets out to break the “curse” that hovers over Tired Girl. But is it possible to conquer nightmares and live a dream while you're awake?

This sweet novelette is a contemporary re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale that sheds light on the worries that bind us and the love that leads to peace. - Goodreads

    1. It's always fun to do a giveaway... and as I hadn't in a while, I figured, "why not!?" ;)

      I agree about Amber's novella. It's darling. And oh my, I hadn't realized you'd not read any of Becky's novels! Well, this would be a great place to start! And best of luck, Courtney. :) :) :)

  12. I like novellas because there are times that I am not able to read a full novel for a variety of reasons. During these times I need a short story to give me a vacation from whatever is happening. Or to keep me from thinking too much.

    1. Excellent notion, Jan. Novellas are nice for quick reads and most of the time they can be read in the space of an hour or two (depending on the reader). I'm glad you enjoy reading them. :)

  14. I love reading novellas. I like the idea of finishing a book in 1 day. I do not like to read anything that does not talk about God. Christian Fiction is the only kind I like to read.

    1. These are both charming novellas that are more Christian than not. There's not a lot of Christianity in the sense that they're "preachy" fiction, but they're both wholesome romance novellas. :) Best of luck, Lillian.

  15. I'd love to read either or both of these. Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. I do like novellas sometimes, especially in a collection. They are a good way to be introduced to new to me authors.

    1. Very true, Pam! I like that they can introduce us to new authors as well without a great deal of investment in our time. I hope you enjoy both or one of these (which you're interested in). They're super sweet. :)

  17. Both books look fabulous! I have Amber's book on my Kindle already and can't wait to read it! I'm a fan of hers! Novellas are a good break from reading the long stories and allow me to read little bursts from authors. It gives me some diversity in my reading, if that's the right verbage to use here. It's late! Lol!

    1. Both novellas ARE fabulous, Nancy. I hope you enjoy Amber's book; I'm a fan too. :) I like that - "bursts from authors." Novellas are a lovely way to "meet" new authors. Happy reading - and best of luck.

  18. I used to read Novellas but have gotten away from it in recent years. I find I prefer longer stories. I will read a novella on my kindle if I have finished a physical book & don't have another one handy.

    1. Generally I do as well, Becky; longer stories give the characters more room to grow. But these are both really sweet and like you say, they're handy to put on that reader for when we need a quick read. :)
